J.R. Miller D.D.

 

J.R. Miller D.D was considered by many to be the most gifted and popular devotional writer of his era. There are several sources, on the Web, for Miller’s works, but none is complete. This site exists with the aim of gathering all his works into one place. During his lifetime Dr. miller wrote over 60 books, booklets, and pamphlets. No known complete list of his works exists. The list on this site is incomplete. Each month a hitherto unknown book by Miller is added the list. This is not a short term project as it might take several years to gather all of James Miller’s works and publish them on the Web. Hence, all offers of help will gladly be accepted.

James Russell Miller: the eldest son of James Alexander Miller and Eleanor Creswell Miller was born on March 20, 1840 at Frankfort Springs, Pennsylvania He served with the United States Christian Commission, an agency set up to minister to the troops, during the civil war.
